Recap of October USCIS Twitter Office Hours
We were able to answer many common questions that we know many of our stakeholders have. We also received a number of questions that we didn’t have time to address during the Twitter chat. You can find all of the questions and answers below.
Are you still looking for answers to your customer service-related questions? Be sure to visit the recap of our first session, and stay tuned for the next USCIS Twitter Office hours on Tuesday, Nov. 3, from 3-4 p.m. (Eastern). To participate:
- Follow @USCIS on Twitter.
- Ask your question in a tweet (not a direct message) using the #AskUSCIS hashtag. Be sure to submit your question before Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. Eastern time.
- We can’t provide you case status updates, only answer general customer service questions. To check on your case any time, enter a receipt number at Case Status Online.
- Don’t post your A-Number, receipt number, Social Security number or any other personal information. Someone could use it to steal your identity.
- We’ll answer as many questions as we can during the hour.
- Afterwards, we’ll post a transcript of the questions and answers to this blog.
